My favorite things are generally reading and listening to music. I do also enjoy alternative comedy shows - they're pretty entertaining and lighthearted. I also like early music - music from before the birth of Bach; lots of hooting and ambient echoes. If we meet, I will likely invite you to a concert.
It can be comfortable being a bachelor in a city like this - I'm very independent, perhaps because I'm an introvert. But, I'm hoping to meet someone unique who sets my heart racing. I'm not dying to meet someone, or sad about being single. Friends are a huge part of what makes life worth living. But I know i would be a great boyfriend to someone who is a great girlfriend (partner or use whatever term you like).
I've finished a novel, and am now working on another one. It's fulfilling and feels like a life's mission. I went to Bread Loaf in 2013, so writing is an important part of my life.
Just was in Portugal - amazing trip! Portland, Oregon next for a long weekend this summer.
I also am a regular church-goer and enjoy it very much. If you know what it's like I'd especially like to hear from you. If not, please keep an open mind.
